HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Pagham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Pagham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Pagham property's condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the justification to go for a full structural survey when acquiring a extended detached bungalow near Pagham instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often referred to as a Structural Survey, it is now defunct and as it has been re-titled by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. Our advice would be to choose the Building Survey in relation to the house you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a mid century or later unmodified house assembled from conventional construction materials. You should be aware of certain restrictions are integral with a Building Survey - a surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the building for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Pagham house but are worried about bugs - What should we do?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of insecticides and removal of infected furniture. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Pagham with stone walls cause issues? What matters should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Maintenance costs for stone-built properties in Pagham can be higher than for more standard. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
